Wireless sensor nodes are tiny and have limited battery and memory. These sensor nodes are distributed and self organizing networks. Mobile Ad Hoc network (MANETs) has wide range of applications areas. Growing usage of MANETs in various applications makes a paramount issue in providing QoS. MANETs are vulnerable to different kinds of malicious attacks due to its dynamic nature, which affects nodes connectivity, increase in energy consumption and functionality. Centralized and cryptographic security approaches requires more computational functions which increases overhead. Traditional approaches have more overhead. Most existing trust-based security schemes for mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) consider packet loss an indicator of possible attacks by malicious nodes. Thus to achieve secure and reliable data transfer a trust aware scheme is required to evaluate trust level among honest and malicious nodes. In this paper we propose Trust Aware Scheme for Moving nodes (TASM) which discovers efficient node by computing each node’s trust value. In this scheme moving nodes exchange their trust information and analyses the received trust value and makes judgement. This scheme modifies the existing AODV routing protocol and determines malicious nodes based on trust value and log information. Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) determines efficient and trusted neighbour node selection while routing. Proposed scheme is compared with the existing trust based scheme and network parameters like throughput, packet delivery ratio and end to end delay is evaluated. Trusted routing can efficiently deliver data for different routing applications used in military, Fanets and mobile IoT.
